Castlebar translated means 'Barry's castle', so it's not surprising to learn that the ruins of the 13th-century de Barry Castle lay in the town on Castle Street. Indeed, the military heritage in Castlebar is a strong one, being the site of the famous 'Races of Castlebar' during the 1798 Irish Rebellion.
